Ankara will no longer borrow money from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), according to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. “Turkey’s economic indicators are at a very good level compared to other countries,” Erdogan told his AK Party on Sunday, adding that the IMF chapter in the country has been closed for good.
Turkey remains a country with low debt levels. Turkey’s 28 percent public debt and 16 percent household debt-to-GDP ratios are both roughly half the developing country average, Treasury and Finance Minister Berat Albayrak said on Sunday.
